"Episode 6 of #shutinfilmfestival. Lessons in Semaphore (2013) is a fast collaboration with the great and luminous choreographer #taishapaggett and a corner lot in Washington Park Chicago and a neighbourhood kid and frequent visitor to my studio, Malyk. My camera was busted. This was the last time I used my beautiful Vietnam bell+Howell wartime wind-up. I never convinced my fellow residents that the empty lots offered a wild prairie beauty. Fair enough. Because these empty lots also remind us of redlining and anti-black economic operations on fleek in Chicago and all over the country. But this was a small attempt at looking at the way the violence of American racism might, for a moment, be undermined and resisted. Chicago, I miss you. 👐🏾🙋🏿‍♀️🦋🐞🐝🦜🌱🌾🧩🎥🎞💚🚩💚🟥🟦🚩 - Cauleen Smith's Instagram 30 March 2020
